    From how this reads, vikings were monogamous
    http://www.arild-hauge.com/elife.htm

    Spoiler:
    which basically means that ragnar did her wrong. now i'm sure, as with most societies, having a single mate was not the same as having a single sex partner. But I think he shamed her, not by getting the other woman pregnant but by welcoming that woman into her home and wanting to elevate her to be equal.

    but we saw that ragnar was obsessed with having more sons, and I think that's what guided his actions. Since his wife couldn't have more he would find a woman that would.

    It probably would have been less shameful to have gotten a female slave and use her as a broodmare than to welcome a foreign princess and suggest that she be equal wife

    Yeah the shame aspect makes sense.
    Spoiler:
    I think the fact that his new wife was basically Viking royalty made it even worse.

    Spoiler:
    In the preview it seemed like Lagertha hooked up with king Ecbert? Which doesn't make sense, since he's in England. Wonder where she and Bjorn moved.

    I just rewachted the preview, and ...

    Spoiler:
    That man who slaps Lagertha around isn't King Ecbert. Not Linus Roache, different features. Whoever he is, that remains to be seen... next episode.

    I want know who that is. She's still a shield maiden?? In the last episode Athelstan went on the raid, and fought Saxons. Floki still calls him priest though.

    And Athelstan's response to Floki was priceless.

    Much better hair. And the foul mouth was pretty funny.

    Anyone see the more grown Bjorn? I've become and even dirtier old lady. I thought I was bad with Zac Efron.

    He's played by the actor who plays the one who stands between Katniss and Peeta winning the 74th Hunger Games -- that's all I know.

    I've fancied Athelstan and Rollo since last season. Still need to watch the new episode.

    Athelstan, even with the tonsure, was hot. With a full head of hair (even long), and with his more bold attitude, yeah, I'm liking that. Floki really annoyed me last night, though. I can see a time where he and Athelstan will come to blows.

    He's been living with them for like 5 years, and Floki still calls him priest.


    Spoiler:
    Who planed the defense against Jarl Borg? It held up alright for the town being so out-numbered. Dual wielding- hot, he should do it more. I thought Ragnar was more of the leader, but I guess Rollo can be when needed.
